Q.The focal length of a biconvex lens is 10 cm.Find the radius of carvature.When we apply the formula R=2f,we get 20 cm,but if we apply the lens maker formula we get 10 cm(taking R.I.=1.5) .Please explain these contradictory results.Please help!!!

the resultant of A vector and B vector makes an angle alpha with A vector and beta with B vector ,then prove alpha is greater than beta if A
Always the resultant bends towards that vector which is higher in magnitude. If the magnitude of the vectors are the same, the resultant will make equal angles with both. But, If suppose A...
